I'd like to knit this shawl I found on the Michael's site:

Which is normally knit with Lion Brand Trellis Yarn... But, this is a bit pricey...  Do you have a substitution suggestion? The pattern is very pretty...

bernat matrix is a similar ladder yarn to trellis, but i believe it's around the same price.

knit picks has one ladder yarn as well, sparkles.

this type of ribbon novelty yarn is all around the same price... perhaps you can do a search on ebay for better pricing? or if you order from joann.com i know they're having a 15% off deal today.

good luck!

i've knit this and you could probably do it in any yarn that is about the same weight (light) but it doesnt necessarily have to be lacy (that just makes it shiny) I would check in your Michaels store...like about 2 days ago it was on sale...also check their clearance bin...you might get lucky.

Thanks everyone for your replies... I hope to knit this up this weekend - with an additional 2 kidlets (for a total of 5!) I don't know how successful I'm going to be... Will post pics though!
